Both the site of the signing of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, and the capital of the United States for 10 years, Philadelphia is visited primarily for its history as the cradle of American democracy and religious tolerance.
But the city has many other surprises in store, especially on the cultural front. First of all, thanks to some exceptional museums such as the Barnes Foundation, which brings together a fantastic collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. But art in Philadelphia is also in the streets with its many murals that have made the city the world capital of urban mural art. If you are greedy, you won't be disappointed either. Philadelphia not only offers many culinary specialties, but it also gives you the opportunity to try more creative cuisine in restaurants. Finally, Philly, as it is known in the United States, also offers many references to movies such as Rocky or Benjamin Gates, the sculpture Love, the opportunity to meet Rangers at Independence Hall or to discover some Francs Masons symbols.
And good news, located between Washington and New York, it is less than 2 hours from each of these cities.
A tip, before starting the tour, meet at the visitor center to take tickets to visit Independence Hall and Liberty Bell center. This way, you will be able to stop there on the way.
Family Way nous offre un super parcours pour découvrir Philadelphie et les origines des États-Unis. Ayant déjà visité Philly une dizaine de fois, nous avons découvert certains quartiers et profité des énigmes pour nous replonger dans l’histoire de cette ville avec nos enfants.
Une superbe journée remplie de découvertes culinaires, culturelles et historiques.
